One cannot ignore the issues that homeless people face in the current economic crisis: it feels natural for the more fortunate of us to help. But a pound is a pound, and I expect donations to be used intelligently by charities. In the same way that a business tries to maximise its returns to shareholders, I expect charities to maximise their impact on society: Crisis understands that, and demonstrates it.

Crisis Investors adds that essential sense of accountability in the process; the scheme provides me with the reassurance that my donations will be well spent.
